Arthur, Nathan Spencer, MODOK, and Magneto join the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 cast

MvC3 Arthur e1286587163229 Arthur, Nathan Spencer, MODOK, and Magneto join the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 castCapcom announced Arthur and Spencer as playable characters in MvC3 at the New York Comic-Con. Even better, the Marvel website leaked screenshots that reveal Magneto and MODOK as well. Oops?

The announcements from Capcom just never end. This time we get to see Arthur from Ghost’n Golbins and Nathan Spencer from Bionic Commando in action. Capcom decided to be a bit funny and put the “wife arm” version of Spencer in the game. He’s just not as rad as the original.

What’s great about Spencer though is that he has really cheesy one-liners. He even says “get over here” when shooting out his bionic arm towards his opponent. Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion is rolling in his grave. Arthur on the other hand is just full of win. Not only does his remixed music sound great, his attacks are as classic as it gets. Don’t you just love those boxers?

[Update] Screeenshots and videos for all four characters are now available. Also included is a new video at the top that shows off the symbiote Spider-Man costume. Unlike previous games, the Marvel characters actually have alternate costumes and not just color swaps. Pretty awesome!
